Here's how LUMEYO makes a difference.
We currently engage 21 women in the recycling process and 12 women in the process of woven product design. Next to that we use local suppliers that either engage women or support refugees.
Let us walk you through the process of creating our Bedouin design products. To begin we recycle 2nd hand sweaters into yarn that gets handspun into threads suitable for weaving. We have three recycling teams.
The recycled threads then are delivered to our weaving teams who work on the ground loom to create woven fabric in unique patterns. From the fabric they handcraft our Bedouin designs ranging from laptop sleeve to tote bag, from pillow to wallhanging, from yoga strap to yoga rug.
At this moment the majority of work is done. At this stage an intensive quality check takes place but also elements from other organizations in Jordan are incorporated within the Lumeyo Designs. For example by using sea-glass made by women from Aqaba, wooden beads from Amman made by disabled persons, or leather straps that are made by Iraqi Refugees.

Other vulnerable groups
After quality control other elements like glass beads, wooden toggles or leather straps are incorporated in the design. These items are supplied by organizations engaging women and refugees.
With your purchase we are able to have a positive impact on the life of women, youth and vulnerable groups in Jordan. We are a not for profit social business of which all revenues are reinvested in order to expand and impact more lives.
